Recent Snowshoe property reviews
"This is a great place to stay, very convenient to the slopes, and the locker provided on basement level was a BONUS! Our only disappointment was with the gas fireplace. It wouldn't stay lit due to the very windy conditions-NOT the owners fault. Really couldn't complain about that either because it gave us 8-10 inches of fresh snow! !:)"Guest: VOLGIRL Date of Stay: March 2014 Review Submitted: March 30, 2014View listing
"We stayed here for two nights for the GNCC race and the place was great! Great location, right in the heart of the village and who can beat having a Starbucks right at the bottom of your building?? The place was spacious and the view is just fabulous of the moutains. Undergroud parking was really nice to have and just really had a great time at this condo. The only negative is the pull out couch is uncomfortable (as most of them are) and my kids just decided to just sleep on the floor, but that's no biggie. Kitchen was spacious and had everything we needed to cook with. Owner was fabulous to deal with too. Would definitely stay here again. Great condo all around!!"Guest: Courthoward Date of Stay: June 2013 Review Submitted: July 2, 2013View listing
"This VRBO Condo surpassed our expectations for a resort rental property! Clean and well maintained, the furnishings and equipped kitchen made for a comfortable stay. This is a great location, easy access to everything by shuttle (frequent runs that pickup at the building entrance), or a very easy walk to shops and restaurants. The owner was responsive, and provided his contact information as well as the resident manager’s information for easy contact. The clean and functional hot tubs on the first floor were an added benefit after a long day of skiing. We will keep this property information saved for future trips to Snowshoe!"Guest: C.L.

"We spent a long weekend at the Sweet Spot with 4 families that included 3 kids and 2 teens - and everyone had a great time! This condo is in the perfect location - easy to get to the slopes and a short walk to the Village - or hop on the shuttle right outside the front door! The owners were very helpful and responsive to questions before we arrived, and everything was just right when we got there. We've stayed at Snowshoe before, but never enjoyed such convenience - this condo has everything you need! I'd definitely recommend the Sweet Spot, and we'll certainly look at staying here again."Guest: Smithmom Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: February 1, 2014View listing
